AWMS debates crunch-time issues and industry trends in 4th BMBI Round Table
Our Commercial Director and BMBI Expert for Civils, Metal Rainwater & Drainage, John Coe, recently took part in the Builders Merchant Building Index (BMBI) fourth Round Table Debate. The debate took place in December 2019, hosted at Geberit HQ in Warwick.
The BMBI is a brand of the Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) and the annual debate is organised for BMBI Experts to discuss topical issues, and the implications for our industry. Neil Lawrence, COO of Jewson, represented builders’ merchants and Mike Rigby, CEO of MRA Marketing (creators of BMBI) joined the BMBI Experts. The debate was chaired by Jennie Ward on behalf of Builders’ Merchants News (BMN).
Five main topics were covered:
The climate change agenda & environmental legislation
Economic confidence & Politics!
Changes in buyer behaviour and how we sell
Changing Regulations, changing building practices, changing priorities
Merchants and distribution - where next?
The debate will be reported in the January, February and March issues of BMN. It was videoed in full and each video topic will be uploaded to the BMBI website from February 2020.
